Antwerp heavily restricts parking in city centre for visitors
Parking in the streets of Antwerp city centre will be largely reserved for residents and permit holders from 1 August. Visitors from outside the city will have to use parking buildings and underground car parks.
According to the city council, the new parking policy should make the 16th-century heart of the city more liveable.
Parking ticket machines will disappear and parking apps will no longer allow visitors to register their car. Exceptions will be given to caregivers, entrepreneurs and people with disabilities. Residents will also be able to apply for a visitor's permit, which would allow their visitors to park on the street for a limited time.
